THANK YOU! A big shout out to our friends at Australian Mutuals Foundation and all the amazingly generous people who stepped up to take part in our Dollar Match Day.

Thanks you to you, we exceeded our goal to raise $25,000, taking our total tally to over $50,000 - what an incredible outcome for kids!

This funding will go a long way to helping provide safety, care and support to vulnerable children. With the cost-of-living crisis ongoing, more children than ever need our care and protection.

What we’ve achieved is amazing, but there are still so many children in need of support. It’s not too late for you to help in the recovery of vulnerable Aussie kids by making a tax-deductible gift today.

Every single dollar counts.

Please make an urgent, tax-deductible donation today.


 strip Your donation this tax time makes all the difference

Here are some ways your tax-deductible gift today can transform the lives of vulnerable children who have suffered or are at risk of suffering abuse or neglect:


You can help provide meals and other basic essentials to children and their families who are struggling during this cost-of-living crisis.


You can help children receive urgent medical care to heal from the harmful impacts they’ve suffered through abuse or neglect.


You can help provide access to specialist counselling like art therapy so children can begin the process of healing from the trauma they’ve experienced.


You can support a Barnardos playgroup or learning centre where children can develop their confidence and social skills, and blossom into happy little kids.


stripNo child should ever suffer PTSD

Little Taylor was so traumatised when she came into Barnardos care, she didn’t speak a word.

Can you imagine what life must have been like to cause a five-year-old to never speak?

While we don’t know the full facts of her short but traumatic years, I can share what little we do know with you. Taylor and her three-year-old brother Kai were found half-clothed, wandering the streets hand-in-hand near their home.

Kai was pale, lethargic and vomiting. And he had severe scabies. Taylor had ringworm and a bad lung infection. Both children were malnourished, and both had to be hospitalised.

As well as the physical scars, they have both been clinically diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Taylor and Kai’s home was found to be a place of squalor, with dog faeces, broken glass and piles of rubbish on the floor. Cockroaches were everywhere, there were dirty dishes and mouldy food on the kitchen counters, and no food in the fridge. There was an unidentified man lying naked in their house.

Thanks to the kindness and generosity of people like you, Taylor and Kai were placed into Barnardos care, and have begun to receive our wrap-around support with a range of therapeutic programs and services.

But they still need your help to recover, along with other children at risk of abuse and neglect.

Your donation today could help traumatised children access the vital medical care, counselling and support they need to heal from their trauma and begin to hope for a brighter future.
